Read Act Your Age, Eve Brown

Read Act Your Age, Eve Brown (The Brown Sisters, #3)

Eve Brown is a certified hot mess. No matter how hard she strives to do right, her life always goes horribly wrong—so she’s given up trying. But when her personal brand of chaos ruins an expensive wedding (someone had to liberate those poor doves), her parents draw the line. It’s time for Eve to grow up and prove herself—even though she’s not entirely sure how…

Jacob Wayne is in control. Always. The bed and breakfast owner’s on a mission to dominate the hospitality industry—and he expects nothing less than perfection. So when a purple-haired tornado of a woman turns up out of the blue to interview for his open chef position, he tells her the brutal truth: not a chance in hell. Then she hits him with her car—supposedly by accident. Yeah, right.

Now his arm is broken, his B&B is understaffed, and the dangerously unpredictable Eve is fluttering around, trying to help. Before long, she’s infiltrated his work, his kitchen—and his spare bedroom. Jacob hates everything about it. Or rather, he should. Sunny, chaotic Eve is his natural-born nemesis, but the longer these two enemies spend in close quarters, the more their animosity turns into something else. Like Eve, the heat between them is impossible to ignore—and it’s melting Jacob’s frosty exterior.

Fun and charming, loved that both main characters were autistic and finally felt free to be themselves. Didn’t love the misunderstanding at the end but it was resolved quickly.

This is the second book I’ve read this week that involves hitting the love interest with their car as a plot device (the other was Don’t Hex and Drive), which IMO is not a good start to a relationship and pretty damn bad. He is injured pretty substantially — concussion, broken arm — and she doen’t suffer any repercussions for her dangerous driving besides being kind of a joke that someone else should drive.
